If you are looking for a handy list of Wokingham dementia support, charities, and local associations, this is your list! Feel free to bookmark it.

Wokingham Dementia Support: UK Government allowance and benefits

The UK government’s website has several helpful guides, includingAttendance Allowance andCarer’s Allowance links.

Attendance Allowance is a benefit top-up for anyone with a disability or long-term condition. Its aim is to supplement care costs. However, how much and whether you are eligible is entirely discretionary.

Carer’s Allowance was created to benefit those caring for someone over 35 hours per week. Its aim is to supplement any income loss during unpaid care activities. If you care for both parents, you should note that your Carer’s Allowance does not increase based on the number of people you attend during those care hours.

TheDepartment of Work and Pensions will assist you further in claiming one or both of these benefits and any council tax reductions or subsidies.

Other helpful guides on the website include:
